About this course

Develop in-depth knowledge of electrochemical techniques and battery science on this  Electrochemistry and Battery Technologies MSc at the University of Southampton. Discover how electrochemistry is essential to energy, sensors, waste treatment and the electronics industry. You’ll gain plenty of hands-on experience and graduate with a UK master’s degree that will prepare you for a wide range of careers. 

Electrochemistry looks at the relationship between electricity and identifiable chemical change. On this course you’ll gain practical experience of electrochemical techniques and their use in sensors, batteries, fuel cells and other technologies. 

You’ll also study the principles of electrode reactions and learn the techniques to study electrochemical reactions and battery processes. 

You’ll graduate from this course with: 

  • in-depth knowledge of the use of chemical sciences in research, industry, the economy and the environment 
  • the skills to plan and carry out experiments, and analyse the results 
  • the ability to adapt and apply different methods to solve problems 
  • knowledge of the latest scientific developments in electrochemistry and battery technologies
